As for the salary, maybe in the past it wasn't that high but this team now has 23 million dollars locked in to like 3 or 4 players. Not a good way to start out under a potential new labor agreement.
While I'm equally unexcited, I don't think calling him injury prone is fair. Prior to his broken leg last season he played in 82, 82 and 80 the three prior seasons.
